ABOUT ALANA DROUIN
At Own Your Day Travel, we know that planning your vacation can be very overwhelming and time-consuming.
Researching and booking everything from flights and hotels to cruises and airport transfers can be confusing.
Add in day tours, travel insurance, and your dream vacation can quickly go from fun and exciting to frustrating and exhausting.
Travel planning should not be that way. When we plan vacations for our clients, we want you to feel relieved, inspired, and excited.
You will spend less time stressing over the details and more time experiencing new things, seeing top attractions, discovering off-the-beaten-path destinations, and getting pampered in luxury villas or all-inclusive luxury resorts.
Our white-glove one-time professional planning fee includes planning and researching, presenting multiple options, booking, triple-checking documents, and document preparation.
Our dedicated team is at your service before, during, and after your trip, allowing you to sit back and relax while we put together a vacation that is exactly what you want.
We look forward to helping you own the day and planning the vacation of your dreams.

I have a passion for travel along with an endless interest in exploring the world and its many different cultures. With three years of experience, my independent and adventurous nature directed me into specializing in areas of travel most relating to wellness, women, and adventure. My ongoing goal is to help enrich women’s lives and their sense of purpose through travel. I hope to inspire women to explore and experience the world, along with my home country of Canada.
Working closely with my clients, I create an effortless experience, focusing on my client’s needs and wants, with no detail too small. I received a D.E.C. Tourism and Travel from Lasalle College, certification as a Travel Leaders Active Adventure Specialist, TICO certification, and am a member of both ATTA (the Adventure Travel Trade Association) and ACTA (the Association of Canadian Travel Agencies).
I have a deep passion for the protection of our fundamental freedoms and contributing to global efforts to make the world a better place. Sponsoring a child in Nicaragua is one of the efforts I support. I hope to inspire and educate regarding sustainable and purposeful travel to my clients as well. When I am not on an adventure with family or friends, spending time outside, or dancing in a local dance studio, I focus my time on my travel business and my clients, creating a genuine, trustworthy, and personal experience. My motto is “You Only Live Once!”. There is so much to discover in the world of travel. I want to help you envision and achieve your travel dreams.

FATMA & AMIR NANJI
I have been in the travel industry for over 10 years and have never looked back! My husband, Amir, has also joined me in this venture.
We have travelled extensively, including Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, China, India, Pakistan, French Polynesia, Hawaii, Mexico, Jamaica, Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, as well as various cities across Canada and the United States. We visit Las Vegas at least twice yearly and even hosted my daughter’s wedding there. We have been to all the Sandals, Beaches, and Grand Pineapple resorts in Jamaica, as well as many other resorts on the island. We have organized and led a group of 33 on a 26-day trip to Portugal, Spain, and Morocco, and also organized another group on a 16-day train trip from Cape Town to Johannesburg, including a safari in Kruger National Park. I often have the pleasure of planning executive trips to India as well. Lately, we have been spending our winter months in Goa, India.
We love cruising as well and are Accredited Cruise Counsellors; you pack and unpack just once, and then get to enjoy travelling to numerous destinations in one trip. We have been on the most popular cruise lines such as Paul Gaugin, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Holland America, Princess, MSC, and Carnival.
We love helping people plan and execute their vacations to make their dreams come true. The greatest reward is when our clients come home safe and happy and say they had the best time ever!

I help solo travelers choose, plan and book the vacation that best suits their own personal travel style. I know that planning a solo trip can be frustrating and time-consuming. In a world where travel itineraries are geared toward couples and families, finding a solo package that suits you can be difficult. It shouldn’t be that way. When I plan a vacation for my clients, they feel heard and relieved that I understand their travel needs. Whether you want to travel solo and alone or solo in a group, I can show you the options to get you to your destination.
So let’s talk…..Where do you want to go next?

Discovering my passion for travel came easy as I love planning all our family vacations and researching where our next adventure will be. Always looking for somewhere new to go and finding activities that my entire family can engage in became one of my favorite things to do so I decided to pursue a career in travel and become a Travel Agent.
Working in the corporate world for the last 30 years has taught me a lot in customer service, sales, retention, building relationships, leadership, and how to run a business. Feeling like I had climbed the “ladder” and there was very little room left for me to grow in my career, I decided that I needed a change but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. I started working with a life coach and discovered what I do like. I like to work with people, I like to help them and I love travel. So I discovered on my journey that I wanted to be a travel agent and be able to continue working with people and helping them plan their travels.

Travel is my passion!! I have been traveling for 20 years, and every time I do it feels just as exciting as the first. I am a certified Jamaica Specialist. Love it! Having traveled there more than 10 times, I can show you the way, what to do, where to stay … and I can handle all the intricate details of booking your special wedding and family groups, as well!
I strive to make all my client’s travel arrangements flawless, so they can relax and have the vacation of their dreams.
Being a travel agent is my second career. I have been working as an office manager in a dental office for 26 years. I have strong organizational and planning skills, I love meeting new people and so enjoy booking destination weddings, honeymoons, all-inclusive vacations, cruises, Disney, or really, anywhere you want to go.
